Artist's Description

Beautiful wild evening primrose I found on the slopes of Haleakala Crater in Haleakala National Park on Maui, Hawaii at dawn.
Canon XT, f/8, 1/160 sec, ISO-400, focal length- 220mm.

Evening primrose (Oenothera) is a genus of about 125 species of annual, biennial and perennial herbaceous flowering plants, native to North and South America.
It is the type genus of the family Onagraceae. Common names include evening primrose, suncups, and sundrops.
One of the most distinctive features of the flower is the stigma with four branches, forming an X shape. It blooms every other year and its large, fragrant yellow flowers open at dusk and remain open through the night.
In Germany, the plant is called night candle for this reason.
The oil extracted from the ripe seeds and the fresh plant is used in herbal remedies.
